Unlikely Hero: Om Puri

Nandita C. Puri (Author)
Synopsis Unlikely Hero offers an exclusive glimpse into Om Puri’s private life, his struggles and anxieties, and the woes of his heart. Discover the Om Puri no one knows about – the tongue-tied actor from Punjab with stars in his eyes; the incorrigible flirt in drama school; the connoisseur of food and expert cook; and the complete family man. Featuring amusing anecdotes with his family, shocking episodes with the stalwarts of Indian and British cinema, the tale is complemented by rare and unusual photographs. Told with wit, honesty, and élan, this book is a fitting tribute to the inspirational tale of Om Puri – one of the most talented actors of India. The late Patrick Swayze, Om Puri’s co-actor in City of Joy, recounts the impact Om had on his life, while notable film critic, Derek Malcolm talks about Om’s immense talent and vast repertoire. Naseeruddin Shah fondly remembers his friendship with Om that began at the National School of Drama and Om’s rise in the national and international film industry.
